    What a lovely portrait of a handsome boy. It’s a lovely shot and a great memory. We love the Santa Express. Which one did you go on?

    1. Thanks. We went to the one in Llangollen. Is that the one you have been to? The photo doesn’t tell the true story though because the rest of the day was a disaster. It was absolutely pouring down. The fake snow had all been washed away by the downpour. You couldn’t see out of the windows because they had misted over. We got that wet that H needed a change of clothing (luckily he had one – it was me that stayed soaked for a few hours), and he wouldn’t go anywhere near Santa. Typical for me! Best bit about the day was that photo and the hot drink and pizza we shared afterwards. 🙂

    1. Thanks Darren for your kind comment. Behind the lens I had a tear in my eye and a smile on my face watching his reactions. Have a great Xmas!

    What a beautiful shot, he looks so enthralled by everything that’s happening around him!

    1. At this point he hadn’t seen Santa coming down the carriage behind him. It was all a day of 1sts for him. 😊
